Structure Overview

Last Updated: Feb 14, 2013 11:24PM UTC
Actions is structured in three levels, each one with its own View and Edit Mode



It is a command, in the form of a shortcut, that you send to your computer application, which is the Target of the Action.

Depending on the application, the Action can trigger different operations on your computer. e.g the same "command+D" shortcut, sent to Photoshop means "deselect", but for Mac’s Finder means instead "duplicate file".
Set up your Action on Touchpad’s preference panel.



A Touchpad Is the container and trigger of an Action
Tap it to fire the Action and send it to your computer application.
You can create as many Touchpads as you want, and you organize them in collections which are called Sets.
Create, load, sort and edit Touchpads in Set’s Edit Mode.
You also can group several Touchpads in Subsets
Find out more about Subset below.



A Set is a collection of Touchpads, stored in the Set Library.
A Set usually have a Magnet application, which is the computer application you want to be linked to the Set.
Create, load, sort and edit Sets in Set Library’s Edit Mode.



A Subset Is a group of Touchpads inside a Set.
It works basically as a folder for Touchpads.
You can have as many Subsets as you want inside a Set.
Tapping on a Subset's Touchpad reveals a drawer in the lower area of the screen, revealing all the Touchpads contained.
Edit Subset properties in Set’s Edit Mode tapping over its Touchpad.
Create, load, sort and edit Touchpads contained in a Subset in Subset’s Edit Mode.
